The Barnegat Township Historical Society has reopened Heritage Village for the season. The East Bay Avenue complex will be open the first Sunday of the month, from 1 to 4 p.m., through October. Tours of the historic village are free and open to the public. Donations are accepted.

Fronting the East Bay Avenue village is the Lippincott-Falkinburg House, which dates to the mid-19th century, and the Edwards House, which dates to the late 18th century. The complex also features a butcher shop, barbershop, corn shed and cabin. All were moved to the village from their original sites, beginning with Lippincott in 1967.

Cindy Janowiak, past president, said that as a nonprofit organization, the society relies on donations and various fundraising events to pay for maintenance and restoration of Heritage Village

“We’ve finished roof repairs to the butcher shop, so that will be open again,” said Norma Paul, society president. “During the tours, we will have society members on hand to answer any questions.”

Donations can be sent to the society at P.O. Box 381, Barnegat, N.J. 08005. For further information, call  Janowiak at 609-698-3788.  —E.E.
